What is Executive function?

Executive function skills are what let us to start, plan, prioritize, organize, encode, and retrieve information. They are like a prefrontal cerebral “control tower” that allows us to manage the demands life presents us at school, home, work . . . anywhere.

All tasks, actions, and activities also require us to have the ability to shift from one task to the next, attend to details, and set viable and actionable goals. Without executive function skills, students lack the fortitude and confidence they need to do well in school as self-reliant, independent learners.

We Can Help

Fortunately, executive function skills and strategies can be taught to smooth the transition from teen to young adulthood to full-fledge autonomy. It’s something SOS4Students does well! Contact us today to explore how we can support you and your student.
